I'm using synergy to use the keyboard of my main computer (Windows 7) for my secondary computer (Debian Linux running on a virtual box under Windows 7).
The Problem is, that I can't enter some special characters (like
\) in my Debian system unless I change the keyboard-layout on my host-system to en-US.
I can however enter those characters in the Windows 7 client. The keyboard-layout on all 3 systems is de-DE.
Is there any way to circumvent this problem? It's really a pain in the ass for me to write with an American layout, since I'm really used to the German one and I make way too many mistakes, when I'm using the American layout.
EDIT: I renamed the question to better reflect my problem, after I out, what the cause is. Also rewrote the question itself.
